    I'm hoping it sells well so that there might be a slither of a chance we get Hajime no Ippo in English

    I'm glad the Great Pretender is getting a standard release - I'm sure they'll do some sort of bundle deal on the two sets at some point, so I'll wait.

    The Anime/Manga I Bought Today Was...

    In preparation for Anime Limited releasing Naruto and Naruto Shippuden (touch wood), I have ordered the available Boruto sets (1-4) + the movie. I caught wind elsewhere in the forum that set 5 seems to be eventually coming to the UK, so hopefully the rest of them do as well. I know Boruto gets...

    What did you RECEIVE today? PHOTOS EDITION!

    I'm sure you've noticed, but for anyone else who isn't familiar, you also get reward points for your purchases (much like The Game Collection) that can be used to redeem 'in-store' credit. They used to give 5 points for every £1 spent, but they lowered it to 3 points recently. 200 points is £2...

    UK Anime Blu-ray & DVD Bargains

    You'll probably get it sooner - I ordered a PS5 game that said the same and it arrived within a few weeks.

    Of course, the RRP going up still means the 'discounted' price going up as well. Forbidden Planet had volumes for around £5 online, but now they're £6-something. I hear you. However, a single blu-ray film is say 2 hours (120 minutes) and those are £15-£20 a pop at boutique labels now. A 13...

    Shonen Jump manga volumes used to be £5.99 RRP (probably less before that, but that's as far as my memory goes back), now they're £8.99 RRP a pop. I think everything has just gone up in price over the past few years because of inflation and the cost of materials going up. £50 is kind of the...

    +1 on that. Going in blind but was encouraged by the positive reception it recieved when it was announced.

    That's a great price for Yu Yu Hakusho - paid about £60 on release for that.

    What did you RECEIVE today? PHOTOS EDITION!

    New arrivals over the past few days/week. Planetes 1 & 2 from Blackwell's arrived today. Tolkien: Maker of Middle Earth (Hardback) from Books etc. arrived today. Over the past few weeks or so I've had the History of Middle-Earth paperbacks arrive slowly (top shelf) - the final book...

    5 Centimeters Per Second Collector's Edition Review

    I got the 5CMPS hardback when it came out - I've had the paperback version for God knows how many years. It's nice to be able to upgrade it to a hardcover with nice binding, which should hopefully last. However, I am kind of disappointed it's essentially the same pages + a new afterword stuck...

    Thanks for mentioning this, I hadn't checked my letter catcher on my door today and there it was!

    I don't think you need to worry about that. I can't see them stopping you from making future purchases - they'll make that £30 back in no time, it makes no business sense for them to block you from making future orders, especially if they can see that you're a regular customer. I've completed a...

    UK Anime Distributor Anime Limited Discussion Thread

    That's interesting - I'm not sure if there is a legal timeframe for when you must report stolen or lost goods from online retailers or if that's simply AL's policy. If it's only Anime Limited's policy and not law, then you might have more wiggle room as the package was not legally delivered on...

    UK Anime Distributor Anime Limited Discussion Thread

    You should still be fine, if you requested for it to be delivered to a neighbour and it was still left in the communal area, then the law should still apply. As long as you did not request for it to be left in the communal area you should be covered as the package was not delivered to yourself...

    UK Anime Distributor Anime Limited Discussion Thread

    As others have said, your best bet is to contact Anime Limited and explain the situation that your parcel has likely been stolen. If a courier leaves a package in an area that you have not requested for it to be left in and it is then stolen, you are legally entitled to a refund or replacement...

    The News Thread (for news that does not need a thread)

    If it's the old zoomed in, 16:9 monstrosity of the orange brick DVDs for Z then it would be a major disappointment. You would have to think they would use the 30th Anniversary scans as they are the best official release thus far, but you never know. The DB scans we got on home video in the UK...

    The News Thread (for news that does not need a thread)

    That's correct. Having grown up on the English Funimation dub, Goku's Japanese voice was something I had to get used to when watching the series in Japanese for the first time. I think the original Funimation dub takes some liberties with the original Japanese script and how Goku was originally...

    The News Thread (for news that does not need a thread)

    Huge W for those that stream. Hopefully this creates even more UK Dragon Ball fans. I'll be curious to see the audio options for DB and DBZ. The Japanese audio that Toei has used in their home releases for DB and DBZ isn't the best as they likely imprinted it onto the film itself and then wiped...

    A few things from the last couple of days. Dragon Ball Super volume 20 recieved from Forbidden Planet today. Always appreciate the plastic wrap they send their manga in, never recieved a bad copy from them. Then, part of a larger order from SciFier/Awesomebooks, I've started collecting...
